The One Wish Genie

Shirley Altman was walking along the beach when she stumbled upon a bottle. She picked it up and rubbed it, and lo-and-behold a Genie appeared. Amazed, Shirley asked if she got three wishes. The Genie said, "Nope, sorry three-wish genies are a story-tale myth. I'm a one-wish genie. So...what'll it be?"

Shirley didn't hesitate. She said, "I want peace in the Middle East. See this map? I want these countries to stop fighting with each other and I want all the Arabs and Jews to love one another. Israel’s always been so dear to my heart."

The Genie looked at the map and exclaimed, "Lady, be reasonable. These people have been at war for thousands of years. I'm out of shape after being in a bottle for five hundred years. I'm good but not THAT good! I don't think it can be done. Make another wish and please be reasonable."

Shirley thought for a minute and said, "Well, I've never been able to find the perfect man. You know, one that's considerate and fun, likes to cook and does house cleaning, gets along with my family, doesn't watch sports all the time and will make me feel like the center of his universe. That's all I want … a good man."

The Genie let out a long sigh, shook his head and said, "Let me see that map again."
